Yes, the Obamacare HHS mandate does violate fundamental rights, said justices willing to state the obvious.

President Obama visits Pope Francis

That headline fires the imagination.

Obamacare’s mounting problems
Sheila Liaugminas | Apr 1 2014 | comment  
It’s not really news anymore that signup for healthcare as promised and touted by the president has hit another glitch. But that it did on deadline day generated at least some headlines.

In a discussion about Tuesday’s oral arguments on two cases challenging the government’s coercive mandate, one legal counsel said “it was really oral arguments."

HHS mandate: Supreme Court hears oral arguments
Sheila Liaugminas | Mar 25 2014 | comment  
Or put bluntly, the government mandate to violate your conscience.

Big Government vs. Little Sisters: a breach too far
Sheila Liaugminas | Mar 4 2014 | comment  
With over ninety lawsuits in courts for over two years contesting the government’s violation of the Constitution and the Religious Freedom Restoration Act, this one may be emblematic.

Prejudice as strong as ever?
Sheila Liaugminas | Jan 28 2014 | comment  
It takes many forms, and it snakes its way through cultural relativism. But it’s alive and very active.

As they say in politics, the optics are bad in this one.

Justice Sotomayor’s New Year’s Eve surprise ruling

HHS mandate, the other Obamacare problem
Sheila Liaugminas | Nov 15 2013 | comment  
The general public and the media are finally dealing with the reality of Obamacare. Great numbers of Americans have a nearly two year jump on that process.

What’s the state of the union built on the freedoms we celebrate this weekend? In a word, threatened.

HHS contraceptive mandate threatens more than religious freedom
Sheila Liaugminas | Apr 10 2013 | comment  
It’s an assault on sensibilities. Worse, it’s perpetuating the real ‘war on women’ along with the myths about a phony one. Because the drugs being claimed under the umbrella of ‘women’s preventive health services’ are actually dangerous for women’s health. Who’s talking about that?
